Martin Swan Violins, of course…
Charlie Stewart spent many months searching for a violin when he was still a teenager. When he came to us we paired him up with what we call a ‘campfire strad’. We don’t get a lot of them, and tend to keep them back for talented youngsters who can’t afford a big name violin. Charlie’s violin is a Salzkammergut from the early 19th century.
We’re delighted he won the Young Traditional Musician of the year award on our fiddle!
If you want to hear more of Charlie’s music, look at the website for his band, Snuffbox.
